Coming home usually late in the evening from my computer salesman job in Toronto, and bringing with me obsolete circuit boards from work, they became my canvas. 

The dark urban landscape was what I witnessed, so I began painting them as I re-examined the definition of landscape art.   I use paint and re-solder the circuits to recreate the lights of the city and the incredible lightning storms common in Eastern Canada.   

I started this reimagined circuit board landscape series before moving to Salt Spring Island 25+ years ago.   I always imagined I was one of the few lights on, late at night, getting ready for my next art exhibition.
